I am in the process of losing my last 50# and this makes my exercise tolerable. I also work and now I can stand being on my feet for longer periods of time. It doesn't take away all my pain and stiffness but It does take it to the level that allows me to mos ... Show Full Comment

I just finished my third injection yesterday. So far nothing has happened. If anything, my knees are slightly worse. They told me it may take all three injections and then it still might be a few weeks after the third injection for full relief. So far the only thing that has happened is that they get really stiff and painful for a day or two after the injections. When the stiffness wears off I am ... Show Full Comment

I have had surgery and gone to therapy to try to solve my knee pain. Nothing seemed to work until this. The first 2 shots were painful and hurt for a day or two. The third, barely felt anything. Although standing for more than 2 hours may cause a little discomfort for the first 2 or 3 days. It is amazing.

I have had 3 injections on my left knee. With my first injection, my knee became tolerable and able to walk better. Now that I have had my 3 injection my knee feels good, I am able to sleep much better. I have to have rt knee surgery but I am going to try the orthovisc with a brace because I am bone on bone. I will let you know the results

I am scheduled from my series of shots for the 3rd time (over a period of 1 1/2 years). These shots have given me my life back. I cannot tell you how much they have helped me walk again without pain. Each series of shots have given me better results that last longer. I am so glad to be able to put off knee replacements for a longer period of time. I hope these shots keep working because they h ... Show Full Comment
